Hosting an Exportable BIRDE
As a convenience to the law enforcement community, the Technical Operations Division (TOD) can export the BIRDE Training Program to an appropriate training site. For organizations that need to train multiple officers or agents, this may be a desirable alternative to enrolling and sending their trainees to the Glynco program. If you would like to consider hosting the BIRDE at your venue, consider the following.
- A classroom with Internet connectivity is required for the export program. (TOD will provide laptop computers)
- For additional information, contact Program Coordinator.
